Eva Kor, a survivor of the Holocaust and one of the few surviving twins from the medical experimentation supervised by Nazi doctor Josef Mengele at Auschwitz, will speak at Indiana Tech on Monday, March 18, at 2 p.m. All are invited to this free event, which will be held in the Snyder Academic Center’s Multi-Flex Theater.

For 40 years, Eva has shared her story of survival and healing across the world. It is one that offers many relevant lessons on the dangers of hate and prejudice, and the consequences of allowing prejudice to persist, unchecked, in others. It is also an incredible story of forgiveness—a conscious act that liberated Eva from the anger and hatred she felt for her perpetrators.

In 1995, Eva opened CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Terre Haute, Indiana, with a mission to illuminate the world with hope, healing, respect and responsibility through education about the Holocaust. In 2017, she was awarded with Indiana’s highest honor, the Sachem Award, which is given annually to recognize a lifetime of excellence and moral virtue that has brought credit and honor to Indiana.

Although this is a free presentation, space is limited so please register at ind.tc/eva-kor if you plan to attend. You can learn more about the event, Eva Kor and her CANDLES museum at indianatech.edu/eva.kor.
